Look at the statistics on 1st round picks, 2nd round picks, late round picks, etc.

If you aren't using your highest selections on defenseman, nobody should be shocked when you don't end up with quality defenders.

This isn't exactly rocket science. It's just simple statistics. I guarantee if we drafted nothing but defenders in the first two rounds for the next three years, we would end up with at least one strong hit and probably a couple more promising players with NHL futures.

We have a solid scouting department. I don't think they are blind to defensive talent or better in any way at seeing offensive talent. It just so happens that the guys who actually make the picks have picked many more forwards than defenders.
